Lewis Structure of a Diatomic Molecule: Example Problem

Not what you're looking for?

Ask Custom Question

N2, CO and BF are neutral diatomic molecules with 10 valence electrons.
Draw a Lewis structure of BF that satisfies the octet rule for both atoms.

This is important for the rest of the problems I have to do, but I can't manage to properly draw the structure.
Also, if you could provide the lewis structures for CO and N2 (I assume these must also satisfy the octet rule), that would be great!
Thanks!!!
